Nomad Health, a marketplace for short-term clinical jobs, has finally expanded into telemedicine with a dedicated marketplace for this area. The launch follows a beta version of the marketplace and formalizes the healthcare startup’s commitment to telemedicine.
It’s a logical move since telehealth companies are keen to expand and they need all the help they can get to extend their pools of physicians and nurses across the country.
A cursory search of telemedicine on Zip Recruiter produced 2,706 jobs across the country.
Dr. Alexi Nazem, Nomad Health cofounder and CEO, previewed the New York-based company’s plans in an interview more than one year ago.
“We expect to get involved in telemedicine. We think it will be a really exciting area for us. Telemedicine is a force multiplier — doctors can see more patients in more places in more settings. None of our current clients are telemedicine providers, but they will be soon. It is right on our roadmap.”
Interestingly, a spokeswoman for the company noted that hospitals are looking to fill telehealth roles as well, although they do not account for the bulk of Nomad’s clients. The company claims it is currently working with some of the largest telemedicine companies,
Nomad’s approach involves doing away with third-party recruitment brokers as a way to cut costs, but contends that it can still do as good a job vetting applicants while speeding up the process of helping companies identify suitable applicants.
Asked how its vetting process works, a company spokeswoman noted in an email that Nomad vets every physician before they take any job through Nomad and applies the same standards across the network, whether they are telehealth jobs or not.
An algorithm matches the needs of hospitals with the most qualified clinicians based on licensing, dates available, specialty, and location, among other things. But Nazem emphasized last year that it’s the job of each institution to verify the information.
The openings advertised on the website, such as for tele-urgent care, teledermatology, and telepsychiatry jobs, reflect just how expansive the telemedicine industry has become.
As of July, Nomad Health had expanded its presence to 14 states.
The value of the telemedicine market is expected to reach $38 billion by 2022 compared with $18.2 billion last year, according to data from Zion Market Research. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for consumer use to match expectations.
